The tweet struck a chord with South Africans who feel that men are abused but that society doesn’t recognise this.
In the wake of the recent Babes Wodumo incident, some tweeps felt the timing of the tweet was slightly insensitive.
Briefly.co.za gathered the overwhelming sentiment is that incidents such as these will fall on deaf ears.
There were some that went against the grain and who believe that cowboys don't cry.
Twitter user, @Diegolicious10, said: “Men must be strong, that's weakness. It's gayish to cry for help.”
